Best Date Night Hairstyles

Okay, let me start off by saying that you don’t need an excuse to dress up and look pretty. As women, we have every right to go all out with our hair and makeup every day, whether we’re headed to a meeting or making a coffee run. But the reality is, we just don’t always have the time or energy to do this. (Sigh.)

So when it comes time for actually prettying up for special occasions (like, let’s say, a date night), it’s a big deal. And date night on Valentine’s Day? Even better. But I think you should be able to get ready without the stress of deciding what to do about your hair, don’t you? Because I’d rather spend my time thinking about how I’ll be treated to flowers, chocolates and romantic dinners. Hey, a girl can dream.
